Subject: Mic Info Is Wrong
The correct source info for this is: (FOB) Two Sony 54P Mics + One Sennheiser 441 Mic

Subject: Awesome Setlist, Mediocore Aud
I hate to say it, because I love this show, but this isn't what I would call five stars either. I'm not expecting a soundboard but I'd love to be able to hear crisp highs. For that matter, at some points I'd like to be able to tell the difference between Phil and Bobby.

If cleaned up a bit this could certainly be 5, but I'm rating 1 just to even out the amount of generous ratings here.

Subject: great show
its certainly the kind of show one expects from dead. its phenomenal. the recording is very good too. thanks for sharing.

Subject: Talk about your smoking shows
Not my first show, but the first one enhanced with vitamin A. They cooked that night and when they started pulling out Dark Star and St. Stephen, well, it was too much.

I'll check out the other recordings referenced here. A long time I heard this on audio tape and it was better quality than the one posted here.
Reviewer: G. Ganter - - February 23, 2008
Subject: Gatto's better
I think Keith Gatto's recording (the other one of the two available now) is better. This version is louder, but it doesn't have the high end as bright.
Reviewer: liberty1 - - December 31, 2007
Subject: better then the other source
I think this sounds so much better then the other source posted here.I'm not even gonna review it cause you all know how good it is.P.S after listening to the other source i think it sounds so much better then this one.still a 5 star show though.wish a sdb will come out someday.
Reviewer: grendelschoice - - December 27, 2007
Subject: Other source better to my ears
Call me crazy but the other AUD source sounds far better to my ears.

This sounds muffled by comparison, whereas the other AUD has a more vibrant, and louder feel.

But you be the judge. It's a 5-star show, hands down, no question. My favorite SHAKEDOWN ever. The MIRACLE is just sick and full of Jerry's gritty blues sound. Wonderful DARKSTAR.

But i urge you to DL a couple of tunes from each source and compare before DL-ing one or the other in its entirety. I'm curious to hear what others think.
